PENCE Bill Proposed to Ban Gay Conversion Therapy

NY Erie County legislator Patrick Burke has generated national and international attention with his recent proposal to ban gay conversion therapy in his jurisdiction: the bill is called the Prevention of Emotional Neglect and Childhood Endangerment or PENCE Bill. Named after Vice President-elect Mike Pence (R., IN), Burke said he developed the name specifically because of Governor Pence's support for such programs. 

Would not be at all surprised if one of Burke's Congressional colleagues puts forward a similarly-titled bill.
